Apoptosis is related to many diseases including cancer. Cell death signals are transduced by death domain (DD) and caspase recruitment domain (CARD) containing molecules and a caspase family of proteases. CARD containing cell death regulators include ARC, RAIDD, Apaf-1, caspase-9, and caspase-2. A novel CARD containing protein was recently identified by several groups and designated Bcl10, CIPER, mE10, CARMEN, CLAP. Bcl10 is a cellular homolog of the equine herpesvirus-2 E-10 gene. Overexpression of Bcl10 induces JNK, p38, and NF-κB activation. Bcl10 interacts with caspase-9 and enhances pro-caspase-9 processing and induces apoptosis through caspase-9 activation. Bcl10 exhibits a variety of mutations in MALT lymphomas and in B and T cell lineage lymphomas indicating that it may be commonly involved in the pathogenesis of human malignancy. Bcl10 is expressed in many human and murine tissues and cell lines.
BCL10 antibody can be used in ELISA, Western Blot, and immunohistochemistry starting at 5 μg/mL.
